electric/acoustic Charvel Model 550 CE

Posted by Dave Drynan on Wed, 01/04/06 - 21:49:48.

Hey there anyone, I made what seems to be an amazing pawn shop find the other day. A really nice Charvel acoustic/electric cutaway..Model 550 CE. Never seen a Charvel acoustic...Can anyone give some info on it? Original price, type of wood etc. It's in great shape and plays like a dream. I don't think the pawn shop realized what they had. It's certainly not top drawer quality (Korean made) but I'm loving the feel and finish and sweet tone, nice electronics, natural satin finish. Thanks

Yep I have a 550 for years I thought it was a cheap laminate until I made a soundport on the side upper bout. and discovered its all solid wood, Spruce top and mahogany back and sides, funny thing is I wanted to upgrade to a Takamine so I took my guitar along with me, the salesman could not believe his ears, and called a few others around to try to judge which was better, I left smiling with my 550 in hand and not spending a cent. Changes I made were put Tusq saddle and nut and play with light phosphor bronze strings Enjoy
